Well said Haz. :angel:

Reverend Dake taught the literal bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.

"Dake’s views range from orthodox to outlandish, to decidedly unorthodox. He rejected the theology of “denominationalism” and instead adopted a hyperliteral interpretation of Scripture that resulted in erroneous doctrines, such as the view that each person in the Trinity has a body, soul, and spirit, and that Jesus’ resurrected body was not physical.

I am not a preacher. I am a retired coal miner, nothing more, but I do understand plain simple Scriptures and I believe what I read.

Regarding Jesus' resurrected body not being physical being erroneous is shot down in Dakes teachings and also in the Word of God as he taught.

Here Jesus appeared to His disciples in a closed windowless room and they were terrified because they thought they saw a spirit. Then Jesus said this.

Luke 24: 36:43.
36, And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.

37, But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit.

38, And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts?

39, Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones as ye see me have.

40, And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet.

Jesus then asked them if they had any meat? and they gave Him some food and He did eat before them.

41, And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here any meat?

42, And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb.

43, And he took it, and did eat before them.

Plus John 20:18-19; and v. 26-28.

I happened on the Finis Dake annotated study Bible at a bookstore site I browse frequently. The synopsis was intriguing so I began to research the author, Finis Dake. In doing so on most all search engines criticisms of his work appeared before anything positive. Realizing this is a site dedicated to his teachings, and with all respect to that, I would like to ask if you all who know him better than myself would clear the air for me.
One criticism I found was from the site of someone I respect also, Hank Hanegraaff, the Bible Answer Man. Though this is not his article from years ago. https://www.equip.org/article/dakes-dangerous-doctrine/
Please let me know if those observations are correct. Or if the author of that piece is misleading. Thank you for your kind assistance and attention to my concern.
Hi, Sonflower.

To me, it's a lengthy article that raises many points. As to their validity, I think they would have to be addressed on a case by case basis. Many have already been addressed by our discussion board's founder in his response to Joseph Chambers similar article.


As so many points are raised, it's a lot of homework to assign to someone to respond to each point in depth. We have dealt with most, if not all these points, at various times in the history of this board. As of this time, I do not feel inclined to address all of the points at once.

After reviewing Pastor Bible's response to Joseph Chambers, which singular point raised in the article by Jeff Spencer and Steve Bright would you like to see addressed first?

For me (and possibly others), it would help to focus on one point at a time.

Thank you.

P.S. I like to listen to Hank Hanegraaff on YouTube from time to time. Things got more interesting once he publicly renounced Protestantism and converted to Eastern Orthodoxy. I like something that he quotes a lot... In essentials unity. In non-essentials liberty. And, in all things charity. Truth matters. Life matters more.
